OLDER CHILD ADOPTION
Raising a child with very few resources or very little support is not easy, but occasionally that is where a mother or father may find themselves. There is no shame in that. Life is hard sometimes. You may start thinking that the life your child is living, is not the life that you want for them. You may start wondering if your child would have a better chance at being successful in life if they had more opportunities than you could offer them. These thoughts are not selfish nor do they mean that you don’t love your child enough. In fact, it is quite the opposite. It is your unconditional love for you child that is driving your desire for them to have more and is selfless.
Making the decision to place your child for adoption, is never an easy decision. When
considering placing a child for adoption who is now a toddler, a sibling group or even an older child, there are many things to consider. How will this decision affect my child/children? Will he or she think that I didn’t love them? How will I know if they are happy or if they are going to be okay?
Gift of Life Adoptions is here to help you talk through your choices. We will do our best to find resources for you and your child. Whether that be helping you to continue to parent your child or finding a wonderful adoptive family who is hoping and praying for a child to love. You can pick the family you want. You can meet them and be involved in the transition as well as receive picture and letter updates until your child is 18 years old. Transitioning a child into a new family is a delicate process that Gift of Life Adoptions has been very successful at over the past 20 years.
